Germany captain Michael Ballack has been ruled out of this summer's World Cup following scans on an ankle injury. The midfielder suffered the knock during Chelsea's FA Cup final victory over Portsmouth at the weekend after a clash with Kevin-Prince Boateng. He went for a scan in Munich on Monday morning but the German Football Federation (DFB) has confirmed that the results mean he will play no part in South Africa and will not train for eight weeks. It is a huge blow for Germany as Ballack has been an integral part of their side in the last decade and is nearing the 100 caps mark. The 33-year-old has played in every major tournament since 2000 and has enjoyed a successful season with Chelsea this term, clinching a Premier League and FA Cup double. But his campaign has ended prematurely and Germany coach Joachim Low will have to alter the shape of his team with under a month until the start of the competition. A statement from the DFB said: "National team captain Michael Ballack is out of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. "This is the result of an MRI on Monday morning in Munich. A tear of the medial collateral ligament of the right ankle was found. "The right ankle is immobilised in a plaster. He will have to wear a special shoe for two weeks. "After the diagnosis of national team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt today, a complete healing of the injury is expected. "Ballack's return to training is possible at the earliest in eight weeks." Germany have been drawn in ...

---92LENIN--- --GOLD EDITION-- Music:Foo Fighters - Everlong Michael Ballack (born 26 September 1976) is a German football midfielder who plays for Chelsea of the English Premier League and is the captain of the German national team. He is among the top goal scorers in the history of his international team. Ballack has worn the number 13 shirt for every team he has played for except for 1. FC Kaiserslautern. He was selected by Pelé as one of FIFA's 100 Greatest Living Players, and as the UEFA Club Midfielder of the Year in 2002. He has won the German Footballer of the Year award three times - in 2002, 2003 and 2005. Ballack began his career as a youth at Chemnitzer FC, his local team, and made his professional debut in 1995. Although the team were relegated in his first season, his performances in the Regionalliga the following season led to a transfer to Kaiserslautern in 1997. He won the Bundesliga in his first season at the club; his first major honour. He became a first team regular in 199899 season and also earned his first senior national cap for Germany. He moved to Bayer Leverkusen for €4.1 million in 1999. The 2002 season saw him win a slew of runners-up medals: Bayer Leverkusen finished second in the Bundesliga, German Cup, UEFA Champions League and Germany lost to Brazil in the 2002 World Cup Final. A €12.9 million move to Bayern Munich led to further honours: the team won the Bundesliga and German Cup double in 2003, 2005 and 2006. Ballack had become a ...
Kaka, Xabi Alonson, Michael Ballack, Frank Lampard and Petr Cech all testing the new adidas Jabulani Ball - the official match ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Translations: Real Madrid: Kaká It is cool. The first impression is good. The colours of South Africa, a funky pattern on the ball. Cool. Well done! Talk about the name of the ball Kaká: The name of the ball is Jabulani; I just don't know what it means. Interviewer: Celebration! Kaká: It is great. So, I wish a good celebration for everyone. I think that this World Cup will be once again a big event for the whole world, so many people will celebrate, have a party, enjoy their countries, their players. So I feel it is an appropriate name to be used in such an event as the World Cup. Real Madrid: Xabi Alonso Well it seems to be a football exactly for for South Africa, with all these in terms of design it has these African tribal circles. Also it seems to me that it's a very fast football. I am positive that it will score spectacularly fast goals, and this will provide a great spectacle of football. It's quite natural and comfortable, it's a very light football and I think it'll be very fast. It's looking good, and I'm sure that all footballers will enjoy this ball in the world Cup. I pretty sure it'll be amazing. Chelsea: Michael Ballack Good on the foot goes exactly where I want it. No really, it's really cool. What do you think about the ball after trying it out? Well, first thing, it's got fantastic grip, so when ...

Definitive compilation of the funniest Michael Ballack animations - the ballistic one chases referee Tom Henning Ovrebo round the pitch like a madman at the hilarious Chelsea vs Barcelona 2009 Champions League Semi-Final. Featuring a cameo from the "f***ing disgrace" that is Didier Drogba...! Thanks to all the contributors!
We all saw the Chelsea vs Barcelona's 1-1 match at Stamford Bridge which meant that Barca goes to face Manchester United in the UCL Finals. Near the end of the match, Samuel Eto'o had committed a hand ball foul in their own box which would have gave them a penalty shot. Even though it was very clear, Tom Henning Ovrebo missed it. Then Ballack went CRAZY and chases the ref. Here are some funny animated gifs.
